Insecure Food

To demonstrate the subsidizing realities of Social Security, a student group on campus set up a social "insecurity" bake sale in the Johnson Center. Charging $1.00 for freshmen, $0.75 for sophomores, $0.50 for juniors, and $0.25 for seniors their goal is to demonstrate how younger generations will have to pay more and more to continue to support older generations.

I noticed the sign and jokingly asked the vendors if graduate students ate for free. To my surprise he said yes and I grabbed a cookie. It was quite good.

So to my fellow graduate students: there is free food in the JC. And if it's anything like the real social security, get it while you can because there won't be enough to go around.
